Actually, since it usually causes gastrointestinal side effects, including diarrhea, it's usually known to cause the opposite problem of weight loss.

You should also be informed that some people develop serve, ongoing diarrhea, so you need to watch out for that and contact your doctor if it happens.

Learn more Linzess details here.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I've gained 4 pounds in 3 days since I started taking Linzess. I am on weight watchers so I count points so I know it is not my food intake. I don't usually fluctuate in pounds so I think it's the new meds. I am still taking Miralax but it doesn't seem like either are working. I look pregnant now. It may take 2 weeks for the meds to work. I may need a higher dose. I'll give it a more time.

I started on Linaclotide a couple of weeks back. It isn't working very well at all, and I am constantly hungry. Anyone else having this result?

I had the same weight gain on 145 mcg of Linzess, four or five pounds the first week. Am finding it very difficult to lose that weight. Many others have complained of sudden weight gain. I called the manufacturer and informed them of same. I've discussed this with my doctor but we can't figure it out.
